VIDA Series | Bliss Braoudakis

I have admired Bliss Braoudakis and her work from afar for quite some time now. Ever since first coming across her online portfolio by chance, I catch myself visiting her page on a frequent basis, sort of like checking-in, to ensure I'm up-to-date with her latest work, inspirations, and other tidbits she graciously shares with her audience. It's no doubt that the reason I was originally drawn to Bliss' work, was because of the inspiring manner in which she honours women & femininity through photography. Each and every photograph and subject is so singular and special in its own right, but at the same time, one can feel...

CADETTE WOMEN | Lian Najarian

No words can accurately express just how grateful I am to know the incredible – Lian Najarian (New York-based art director, photographer and social media lead at Tanya Taylor).

CADETTE WOMEN | Quinn Rockliff

I truly feel like it was only a matter of time before Quinn Rockliff and I would meet.  I'm so grateful that Quinn's partner spotted the Female Form Necklace some time in the weeks leading up to her birthday. And gifted it to her for her special day – knowing that the necklace's woman figure would have a genuine connection to Quinn and the incredible artwork she creates.  True to form in this digital era, social media (finally) connected us! Quinn shared a photo on Instagram of her wearing the new Female Form necklace on her birthday, and it's safe to say I became a fan, straightaway. I shamelessly scrolled through Quinn's entire page, admiring...
